    Where can I get more information on adding a pop-up java navigation system to my site, kind of like www.msnbc.com ? BTW, I don't know Java. What are good Java resource sites?

    I went to MSNBC.com and can't see any sort of JAVA navigation scheme in use. In fact there are no applets on the page at all. The page is made up of simple images with standard hyperlinks.

    Well, now they make you download an applet which does a popup tree menu... if the applet isn't installed, it does static graphics.

    I didn't get any requests for a download sorry. I have never been to the MSNBC site on this computer. Java applets aren't "downloaded and installed" on the computer. They must be using some sort of plugin. Might be an activeX plugin since they are owned partly by Microsoft. I will check when I get to an IE machine.

    I think I see what you are talking about:

    http://www.msnbc.com/tools/nm/nm1.as...Front.asp&b=ie

    when you go to 'health' section they do ask you to download a menu. (weird)

    still didnt see any Java. Those are ASP pages, they also use JavaScript and CSS.

    I don't know what the nav tool you are looking for is like, but Netscape offers a neat cross browser compatible popup nav tool at
    http://developer.netscape.com/docs/e...t=dynhtml.html

    Give it a look!
